After a short river safety presentation, the students boarded canoes. Students traveled five miles down stream in their canoes and conducted macroinvertebrate surveys along the way.
The purpose of the field experience was for students to make a connection between agricultural practices and Chesapeake Bay water quality. In addition, Best Management Practices (BMPs) were observed to see how each practice helps protect river quality.
